Style lessons to learn from Jackie Brown
"Aw, the milk went bad while I was in jail."
Although one of Tarantino’s lesser known masterpieces, Jackie Brown is arguably the most stylish of all. Featuring the blaxploitation icon and foxy lady that is Pam Grier in the titular role, it follows Jackie on a double agent endeavour with the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda and Robert Forester on the side. Set to either make or break her, it’s a trip unlike her usual stewardess days, with twists and turns that you’d never expect. And along the way there are some damn fine outfits. Full of 90s classics like twin suits and daisy dukes, there’s block colour galore and some killer accessories to boot. Strutting along in looks even sharper that their comebacks, it’s got some tasty Tarantino tunes to soundtrack: think Bobby Womack, Johnny Cash, The Delfonics and Pam Grier herself. So stick on the playlist and check out our style lessons to learn from Jackie Brown...
